Antares charts

Very Large scale wgs 84 electronic charts

ordering the charts

The price is £15 for a new set or £9 for an update. These are the first increases since 2011 and you now get more than 12 times as many charts! This is still a hobby—what we charge is aimed at covering the costs of sharing the charts with you rather than contributing to the cost of making them!

 

You must first decide which navigating software or app you wish to use to run the charts. We recommend Memory-Map as we like the user interface and you can also buy the 850 ‘Marine’ charts (effectively UKHO charts) for the UK and Ireland for about £50 along with Ordnance Survey walking maps, etc.

 

 

Memory-Map:

 

New!   We strongly recommend downloading direct to Memory-Map apps on each of your devices. This minimises setting up issues. (c. 300MB) (£14.99 or £8.99 for updates)

For other options:

 

BSB version of our charts for software/apps such as OpenCPN, SeaClear, Polar Navy or Marine Navigator (see note below). There are many such options and we don’t offer detailed guidance but instructions tend to (but may not) come with the software/apps. (£15 or £9 for an update):

KMZ:  Those buying our charts in Memory-Map or BSB format will be able also to download our charts in KMZ format for viewing in Google Earth on a PC or Mac (not a mobile device) with a good internet connection, typically at home. See Google Earth setting up guide.

 

 

Updating your charts?  As usual, if you wish to update charts bought in the last two years we are happy to offer a new set at a reduced price.  Just follow the links for buying a new set and select the ‘update’ option when you are asked to pay.

 

 

Gift vouchers. With our streamlined automated download arrangements we can no longer offer gift vouchers. We apologise to those who have used them but remind everyone that it is  in contravention of our Conditions to buy charts for anyone other than yourself.

*** Marine Navigator appears to be an excellent app and we are aware that it is quite widely used. At the time of release of our 2020 charts, 27 of the 523 do not register correctly but can be opened ‘manually’. The app author has identified the issue that causes this and will be issuing an updated version of the app in due course.
